|House of Cards|
|For this card, I used the ocean theme as my inspiration.|
The seascape was copied and mirrored for a symmetrical scene.

Prize: $10 to use in store
|I added three enamel dots matching the colors of the ocean scene.|
The black border around the swirly sentiment blocks it in very nicely!
|While I was coloring this scene it quickly came to me a set of children's books by Ruth Galloway I used to read to my children.|
Below, I have attached the front and back cover of one book of her books.
Now we are back on land with another card.
|In keeping with the inspiration photo, |
I decided to keep the colors soft and to a minimum.

|I added some vintage charm with a lace stamp at the corner of the card. |
The sentiment panel is bordered with black which coordinates with
the black strip on the side of the card.
|I added a bit of texture by coloring the little blue flowers and adding tiny flowers in her basket.|
Again keeping it soft and beachy.
YES! we have more fabulous sponsors
Prize: Any three products of your choice!
